Trouble is brewing at the Ridge Government Hospital in Accra following the appointment of one Dr. Thomas Anaba as Medical Director of the health facility. Some senior staff members at the health facility are protesting against his leadership citing irregularities in the appointment process. During a visit by Citi News to the health facility, various blocks at the premises had been plastered with banners and posters with the inscription “Aluta…The Imposition of Anaba, a recipe for chaos at the Ridge Hospital; Anaba is not welcome at Ridge…SROF Man of great vision for Ridge”.
Although initial efforts to get authorities at the Hospital to comment on the matter proved futile, one senior staff who spoke on condition of strict anonymity, said the appointment of Dr. Thomas Anaba, followed a series of processes including the advertisement of a vacant post, shortlisting of candidates and interviews, hence, he does not understand what the qualms of those leading the campaign are.
He further explained that, Dr. Srofenyoh, the acting Medical Director of the Ridge Hospital, whose name was abbreviated on the posters as “SROF” and referred to as the ideal man for the job, was part of the shortlisted candidates who went through the interview.
